This week's question is: Pick a book in your favorite genre that you’d recommend to a reluctant reader.
 
 
 
MY ANSWER: Oooh this is an interesting question! I've actually recommended aka just bought for my friend, many books I've read as she was easing into the genre! I can't remember all that I bought her over the few years, but I think one that I would recommend is one of two series, these were ones I read when I first started reading adult books looking for my paranormal fix since I wasn't getting that in the YA department--turns out I only had to wait a few more years!

First would be Kelley Armstrong's series Women of the Otherworld! I recommend reading them in order, because there are just little tiny events that happened that would be good to read if you read them in order and there will be no confusion.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11918.Bitten?from_search=trueYou'll get a nice little taste of lots of paranormal beings in this series. It starts out with werewolves, but then we meet vampires, witches, demons, necromancers and on and on! And there's even more "beings" in the books as secondary characters that you'll meet! There are all filled with action, engaging plots, sprinklings of romance and a good amount of humor/comic relief!



The other series I started with and would recommend is Kim Harrison's Hollow series! I LOVE this series and still do! It's so fun! Again, we get a mix of paranormal characters and the plot is always pretty intense and exciting! Rachel never seems to catch a break in this series and has a lot of crap storms to weather through--big and small.

The characters are incredible! There's romance, there's secrets and betrayals, there's action and suspense and yet again some more humorous and downtime moments that just creates the perfect and incredible read for the reluctant paranormal reader!

  3. My friend wants me to read the Kelley Armstrong series so badly, she even lent me the first 6 books a couple of weeks ago.

  5. Been hearing a lot of good things about Kelley Armstrong. Maybe it's high time for me to try out her books. As for Kim Harisson's The Hallows series, it's already on my TBR. The high GR rating is really overwhelming and I felt like I need to jump into the bandwagon.

  7. Those sound really interesting. I don't read a lot of adult paranormal. I'm about to listen to an Anne Rice audiobook though. Thanks for the recommendations.
